If you are interested in wildlife watching, the sea around the Black Isle is nowadays world famous for its dolphin spotting opportunities. Fortrose has a mile long peninsula jutting out into the sea from the town itself called Chanonry Point, and from the beach in front of the Lighthouse you can often see the local dolphins hunting salmon a few metres away in the fast, deep and turbulent water around the very tip of the Point on a rising or flooding tide.
